One - I would NEVER want a parent to go through what we had too with taking the cast off - a spinning saw, a wide-awake 3-year old, a screaming child...I could go on. Two - we had to begin potty-training again, had to encourage/teach Peyton to walk again, & hope that Peyton would eat to gain some weight (he lost a lot of weight the past 6 weeks). Last weekend, I was in tears - discouraged with the potty accidents (after making soooo much progress in August) & his fear of trying to walk. I wondered if life would ever get back to normal! Finally, on Tuesday (almost 2 weeks post-cast), Peyton wanted to really try to walk!!! I had tears in my eyes, but this time - tears of JOY!
